Women’s Summer Tennis League seeks participants

SIDNEY — The Sidney Women’s Summer Tennis League is accepting sign-ups for women interested in playing summer Monday evening doubles tennis on the Sidney High School courts.

The city of Sidney Parks & Recreation Department aids the tennis league by reserving the Sidney High School tennis courts on Monday nights for the Women’s Tennis League.

Anyone who wants to learn the game of tennis or wants to improve their game is welcome to join the league. There are two divisions: level 1 and intermediate/advanced. Everyone signs up individually but plays with a different partner each week according to a pre-determined schedule. Partners play one match, consisting of 15 games, on Monday evenings at 6:30 p.m. Scores are recorded after each match so that some awards are given at the end of the season.

Matches start Monday, June 6, and continue for 10 consecutive Mondays with the exception of July 4. Play will end on Aug. 15.

The fee is $5 per person which covers the cost of balls and awards. Individuals are responsible for finding their own substitutes. Players who are available for only a portion of the summer are welcome to sign up as well to be added to a substitute player list. In the event of rain, all matches will be cancelled via text notification.

The league welcomes all women interested in playing or learning the game of tennis whether an experienced player or a beginner learning the game of tennis for the first time.

If you are interested in playing or want more information, contact Joan Schroeder at 937-726-5712 by May 28, 2022.
